You are here but where would you like to be? At several times in your life, you may find yourself wanting to be anywhere but where you are in this season of life. This may be caused by circumstances beyond your control, like natural disasters or the actions of other people. Or, it may be caused by the choices you made in the past that have come back to haunt you. Choices like saying goodbye to a long-term relationship or from terminating a crisis pregnancy you decided you weren’t ready to handle.
For many women following one or multiple abortions, they can experience a wide range of emotions which can be difficult to navigate. Feelings such as shame, guilt, regret, anger, and depression can plague women for months and even years. When these emotions are not recognized and dealt with, they can lead to other areas of life being affected. As a Restore client once said, “I see my unresolved anger about the abortion spilling over into my life and impacting my behavior in ways I find disturbing and unseemly.”
Since abortion is a sensitive topic, women who are suffering from its effects can feel isolated and in a desperate situation with no hope of getting out of it. What can you do to change your situation if you find yourself emotionally broken from the experience of abortion but want healing? Please know there is hope and healing in your situation.
